Home Network Security Devices

In this new world started by the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people are working from home than ever before.

Additionally, more and more kids are learning from home from Kindergarten to College.

One thing too often overlooked is the security of the Internet in our homes.

Too many people have their house Wifi connections open for anyone to join. That’s the first problem which is also easy to solve. Simply add a password (and make it difficult).

However, it is possible for malicious hackers to get into your network even with a password. For example, you could open a back door into your home’s network by clicking on a malicious link in an email. By clicking, you unknowingly install malware on your computer which unlocks the backdoor.

To help solve this problem that so many people have, consider installing home network security devices.

The devices listed below offer additional benefits beyond security. Some offer the ability to limit Internet usage for specific devices, on a schedule.
